An Angel Cries

Looking down on a world
of violence and spite
an angel cries

Cries for the children
in a nation of fears
Cries for the people
who should have been their savior

How can civilization
live like this
This was gods creation
not gods damnation

An angel cries

    Angels make sudden and unexpected appearances in some of my poems. And I have encountered them in many other poems by poets at Poemhunter. And now yours, with the angel helpless to stop or reverse our human behavior but filled with grief for its cost to humanity. There's more than poignance here, there's an undercurrent of anger that we have allowed this to happen. But I don't want to surrender to that anger. Far better to write a poem like yours which shows the compassion of this pure being and by her/his/its example points toward a happier reality. That's what your angel, and my angel and all of our angels do - they point the way. (Report) Reply

    Angels always cries, human targets, winning spirits and the desire of being great have turned this world to be the word of pity, we feel sorry for ourselves sir. as I wrote Hear the children crying, the world should cry for itself (Report) Reply
